XR30 Diffusers available


BRS now has the xr30 light diffusers available. I just ordered three for my 180. I shouldn't say this yet but, I think this type of diffusion is likely a big step forward in the evolution of LED reef lighting, particularly for those of us that can't mount our lights crazy high above the tank (mine are about 9 inches up I think). FWIW, I have three gen 2 pros and 4 5-foot t5s over a standard 180 gallon tank.

I am a little concerned about excess heat coming off the light pucks getting trapped by the diffusers and getting the lights dialed in with the diffusers installed but, it's a good excuse to wipe the dust off of my par meter and take some readings.

I'm no reefing expert but, I will provide some impressions after I receive them and get them up and running. I would love to hear from others who are installing them as well.

I just installed mine and other than the fit of the lens (not sure why they don't fit tight yet) I think they provide a great way to spread the PAR and light more evenly around the tank!
